Billy Joel has always wanted to be a rocker. That he made his name on piano ballads and was relegated to soft rock radio even disturbs him, if recent interviews are to be believed. For 1980's Glass Houses, Joel opted to take on the new wave with his usual arsenal of classic rock poses. With his knack for melody in place, he connected immediately with a string of hits he never surpassed. "You May Be Right," "Sometimes a Fantasy," "It's Still Rock n' Roll to Me" and "Sleeping with the Television On" are as powerful and succinct as Joel gets. --Rob O'Connor

Deserted island CD
James T. Young | Salt Lake City, UT USA | 08/16/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This album (along with Songs in the Attic) has topped my list of "deserted island" albums (the albums I would want to have if I were stranded on a deserted island...with a CD player and endless power supply) since I was in my teens. It was the second album I owned by Billy Joel, and quickly became my favorite.
If you only buy one Billy Joel album, it should be this one or Songs in the Attic. But you really shouldn't have only one."
